About the memorial: The Church Clock The rector of the St Giles church has prepared a visitors guide to the church, and within is the information that the church clock was presented to the parish by Joseph Grantham in 1921” in thanksgiving for the preservation of the village from destruction, and, as a tribute to those who were killed during the 1914-1918 war”. The German bomb that struck the churchyard in 1916 badly damaged the roof of the church that half of it had to be renewed and all the windows restored. However, the ancient tower survived intact, so that the church bells could be rung the next morning for the morning service. I climbed the tower from the entrance of the church and looked at the clock from the inside of the tower, with its brass plate.The plate describes who presented the clock to the Parish Church. Below are photographs of the clock from the inside and out, showing the commemorative plate. I was unable to measure the size of the clock. The clock is shown in position on the wall of the church in the photograph that heads this section of memorials in Scartho.
